Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the SDSU Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies and art activism. Opening reception Feb 20 at 5pm. More info: Chantel Paul 619-501-6370.  

Jennifer Luce and the Mingei Museumare entering the final stages of the renovation of their facility in Balboa Park and they are on track to re-open is about a year from now. They have raised 70% of the money needed to complete this vision with many, many new elements to enhance the Mingei experience.  

Pavement art is ephemeral so it is nice to see a local artist Lori Escalerahave such a wonderful documentary video made about her art and life.

The third year of the new Art Walk Carlsbad (Sept 26/27) will have free admittance for the visitors to this lovely space. If you are an artist make sure and sign up now as the attendance will definitely grow. For the spring Mission Federal Art Walk (April 25/26) in Little Italy just announced its 8 featured artists and from SD County that includes locals Lisa Bryson, Peter Dingli, Jeremy Sicile Kira, Anna Van Fleet, and Duke Windsor. Plusthere is a fun new fundraiser benefiting Art Reach. Artists are invited to send in plans for painting a donated guitar. These will be auctioned off with 25% going to the artists. More info: anna@artreachsandiego.org

Hera Hub in Sorrento Valley is hosting interactive chat and book signing for Michelle Gilmore, author of Eventology with information about nonprofit fundraising on Jan 30 from 6 to 7:30 pm.

Governor Gavin Newsom submitted a 2020-21  budget proposal to the Legislature that includes a one-time $10 million increased general fund allocation for the California Arts Council. Over the next 3 years $9 million will go for the support of existing and additional cultural and $1 million for the development of disaster preparedness guidelines and best practices at the county level. In general, San Francisco has more money for the art than any other part of the state. It would be nice to see the CA Arts Council concentrate on the south to help us out as we need that support.

Congratulations to the New Children’s Museum for their $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This will support artist residencies, workshops, and daily activities at the Innovator Lab, a maker-space.

It was with great sadness that we heard the news of the loss of a local and international giant in the art world. John Baldessari leaves an incredible legacy including his cry to “…make no more boring art.”

In March we officially say thank you and farewell to Joe Terzi as the San Diego Tourist Authority welcomes Julie Coker to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer. She is currently serving as the President and CEO of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau.

We also say a fond farewell to The Del Mar Art Center Gallery which has closed down their non-profit organization after 20 years in Del Mar.

The good news is that La Bodega Gallery has found a new home and is fundraising to get ready for their move.

Do you want to engage more people in your art exhibitions? How about breaking up exhibition spaces into smaller pieces (so the audience is not overwhelmed); posting questions and quotes on the wall (instead of factual information), and experimenting with elements like smell and sound in visual exhibitions? That is what is reported in the New York Times about the research being done for the Peabody Essex Museum into the neuroscience of how the brain perceives art.
